what defense firearms to own. he can't buy america. >> right. of course, the nra never tries to use its financial resources to influence opinions. wayne lapierre seems to forget mayor bloomberg doesn't need to buy public opinion on this issue because the majority of americans agree with him. between 85% and 91% of americans support universal background checks in recent polls. that includes 85% of gun owners. so more than 100 days after newtown, why is so much political courage needed to simply stand up for the will of the people? for more on this, i want to bring in our panel with us from dallas, conservative strategist stelia bigalow, here in new york, mr. martin, a survivor of the aurora theater. you have 85% to 91% of americans supporting universal background checks. that includes 85% of gun owners. yet wayne lapierre says the whole thing is a hoax, it's about taking away or confisca confiscating your guns. to you really agree with that? >> what i think needs to be done is we need to strength the system we already have. the fact of the matter is nearly 80,000 people failed background

respective commitment to israel's self-defense. >> mr. president, i want to thank you once again for always making clear that israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat. >> we will help to preserve israel's qualitative military edge so that israel can defend itself by itself against any threat. >> and if iran was the unspoken word in those remarks, it was the crisis in syria that brought a signal warning from the president to president assad's discredited regime. >> we have been clear that the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. the assad regime must understand that they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists. >> and the president said his administration is fully investigating those claims of chemical weapons used in syria. nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engle join us. the first question out of the gate was a robust one, asking the president about the slaughter of innocence in syria and the alleged use of chemical weapons there. the preside

-defense. this is about protecting gun manufactures, period. >> isn't it also, though, if you believe they were going to filibuster, if you believe there was some way to prevent some portion of a vote, strikes me that part of what this is about is protecting certain members of congress from having to get on the record and say once and for all what they're for and what they're against which is, you know, despite all the rhetoric, dangerous given that you have such overwhelming public support for so many of these measures. >> i agree. you have people like mitch mcconnell not sure what's going to happen to him ashley judd wise. you're looking for some of these guys who are up for relu-electr. pat toomey, he's in a state where he should be on the side of gun control. his ideology puts him against it. it's awkward for senators. that's why they signed up for the job and ran and are one of the 100 special people in the senate. i believe for a moment harry reid's deal he made in january can do anything to stop it. this is the reason people wanted harry reid to do real filibuster reform. another re

, according to the department of defense. and, of course, more than a 100,000 iraqis also lost their lives. joining us, michael o'hanlan, senior policy fellow at the brookings institution. here with me in new york, jeremy scahill, national security correspondent for "the nation" and author of "dirty wars" due to pub lilish next month. the first lady spent time today with veterans of the war. the president issued a statement honoring those who paid the ultimate price. has this become a war that americans would prefer to consign to distant memory? >> hi, martin. well, i think the short answer is, yes. i also very much appreciate your introduction and starting with remembering our veterans. because i think rather than this being seen as a day to commemorate either a victory or defeat, it's a day to commemorate the service of so many. because as you say, the cost has been enormous and the costs are right before us. the costs have largely already been paid. the benefits, which i hope will ultimately be substantial, are nonetheless very fragile. or provisional. a new iraqi government, which at l
